Congratulations to Debra Lang on being a finalist for the Fall 2015 Share Your Metropolitan College Experience Contest.
We are so lucky to have the MC program in Louisville. I would recommend it to anyone.

Metropolitan College is an incredible opportunity for college students and was a great experience for me. I didn’t fully realize how beneficial it is until I graduated. I didn’t take advantage of the program my entire college career so I had student loan debt after graduation. 

Now that I’m out in the real world and paying back loans, I wish I would have utilized the program the entire course of college.

Now that I’m out in the real world and paying back loans, I wish I would have utilized the program the entire course of college. It is tough having to work third shift and go to school full-time but in the end, it’s worth it. I learned so much at UPS during MC that helped me in my jobs after college. One thing in particular was attention to detail. While being a package handler and loading containers, I had to pay attention to package and hazmat labels to avoid either a missort or possibly dangerous situation for the aircraft. I still utilize this skill in my current job (Crime Analyst).

It is tough having to work third shift and go to school full time but in the end, it’s worth it.

Today, if I type in one wrong number in a spreadsheet, this can throw off crime stats for an entire year. One reason why UPS is great is that they promote within. Students have the opportunity to become part-time supervisors; some in areas that directly pertain to their schooling. I was promoted to part-time supervisor during my time there and that experience is something that will always look good on a resume and possibly get me better paying jobs if I decide to pursue another supervisor position. MC also helped me with time management. Working third shift isn’t ideal. I had some 9am classes and after working all night, I was exhausted. Having to deal with this dilemma quickly taught me to prioritize.We are so lucky to have the MC program in Louisville. I would recommend it to anyone.

The End

Metropolitan College is looking for current and former Metropolitan College participants to spotlight! If you know of someone, please contact Renecia Griffie Davis, Student Development Counselor at renecia.davis@kctcs.edu or 502-213-4521.
